Recently I’ve been reading a lot of books that are set in the Civil War time or the Amish Community, so it was great to read a book about a different time period. Summer of Joy by Ann Gabhart takes place in the summer of 1964. This is the third book in the series. Although I did not read the earlier books in this series, I still really enjoyed learning about the Brook family who lives in Hollyhill Kentucky. It took me a little bit of time to learn all of the names and back-stories of the characters, but once I did I really liked hearing more about this family.
I really enjoyed this book, and now that I’ve read it, I’m planning to go back and read the first two books in the series. I really liked that the book was realistic to the things that were going on in the 60s, and the realities that face all families, even today.
